9:00 am LET'S FALL IN LOVE (1934) - with Ann Sothern, Edmund Lowe
10:10 am TRIBUTE TO THANHOUSER STUDIOS - Presented by Edwin W. Thanhouser, grandson of Edwin and Gertrude Thanhouser. This one hour program presents three Thanhouser films representing the three different management phases of the Thanhouser studios from 1909 to 1917:
Get Rich Quick (1 reel) Released by Edwin Thanhouser on May 26, 1911 it features Harry Benham, Marguerite Snow and Marie Eline (“The Thanhouser Kid”). This film pictures a young married couple, poor and discontented, then rich with ill-gotten gains, which they give back, become poor again, and in poverty find the happiness they sought. Moral stories such as this were common for early Thanhouser pictures. Made available by Thanhouser Company Film Preservation, Inc.
An American in the Making (1 reel) Released on April 22, 1913 and was produced by Charles J. Hite in cooperation with United States Steel Corporation to show the public the many safety devices which have been installed at great expense to prevent laborers from being injured. Harry Benham is seen in the role of an immigrant from Poland as a new laborer being instructed in his duties. The theme of success in America was not unique to Thanhouser films, and in an era in which Ellis Island served as the turnstile for countless Europeans seeking a better life in the United States. Made available by David Shepard.
Fires of Youth (2 reels) Released on June 17, 1917 as a Pathé Gold Rooster Play. This was one of Edwin Thanhouser's final productions after returning to head the company he founded in 1909. He replaced Charles J. Hite in the fall of 1915 who had tragically died in an auto accident. It features Frederick Warde (Iron-Hearted Pemberton), Helen Badgley (Billy), Jeanne Eagels (Billy's sister), and was directed by Emile Chautard. This English release, edited down from the original five reels, is remarkably complete and tells the story of dissatisfied mill workers plot to kill the owner "Iron-Hearted Pemberton". Made available by EmGee Film Library.
